There's historical documentation to back up the robot's analysis. In Stephen Howarth's Knights Templar, after one of the many seiges of Antioch, when the victors were forced to eat the remains of their fallen enemies due to lack of supplies, a surviving Christian is quoted reporting that Turks taste like bacon.

Oh my. I had not heard about that.

Well, some medical research is done on pigs because pigs and humans are very close, genetically, and, well, there's the reference to "long pig" (I think that is from Lord of the Flies), so ... actually it's fairly impressive that the robot made that analysis. Disturbing... and impressive.

How long until the Butlerian Jihad, do you think?

You mean how long until the robot butlers decide we're too tasty to obey? :)

Please tell me you got the reference. The Butlerian Jihad. The big war between man and machines. "Thou shalt not make a machine in the likeness of a human mind." Please tell me I'm not the only one who remembers Dune...

Ah. I'm afraid I'm not really a Dune fan. Never have read any of the books, and I saw the movie a long, long time ago. I'm sure urox would get it.
